Loon Watch
Loons are excellent indicators of broader lake health. Loon reproductive success can tell us what impacts lake acidification and other conditions are having on fish stocks and aquatic life. The Canadian Lakes Loon Survey and its participants believe educating lake users and residents is the most effective safeguard for loon populations in Canada. Cottage and Lake associations, marinas, schools, and the general public can order signs and brochures about loons and loon-friendly activities through the program, or download electronic copies of materials at For more information, review the Loons Need Your Help Guide or consult their Fact Sheet.
